William Edward Burghardt DuBois was born on February 23, 1868 in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Growing up for Dubois wasn't very easy since he went to an all-white school and often saw lots of racism towards him.
W.E.B Dubois's movement was the civil rights movement. He wanted equality for African Americans.
"We want discrimination in public accommodation to cease. Separation in railway and streetcars, based simply on race and color, is un-American, un-democratic, and silly. We protest against all such discrimination."
W.E.B Dubois legacy will always live on forever since he founded the NAACP which helped get more rights for African Americans. His legacy still lives to this day as the NAACP is still a thing and is helping many people get equality in America.
The Abolition Movement to end slavery was both social and government movement. It was social because it affected everybody in the country since everything was always segregated and they didn't want to change that. It is tied to the government because many people would break laws of going into the white-only areas because they were much nicer.
The legacy of W.E.B Dubois will always live on since he was one of the original creators of the NAACP. (National Assotiation for the Advanced Colored People) Which helped a ton of people because the NAACP led advanced justice for African Americans.
